Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer
Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer
With its strong and sturdy frame and its solid base, the Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer can take loads you might otherwise not dream of carrying on the bike, such as the tools of your trade, the monthly shop or enough equipment for a family camping holiday.
- Robustly built, the frame and swingarm are constructed with steel box-section tubing.
- The trailer-receiving bracket is fitted to the pilot bike's rear wheel axle (on the left hand side, secured by the wheel nut or QR).
- Once the receiving bracket is fitted (a one-off process) you can attach the Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer in seconds via its D-Ring quick release spring clip.
- A secondary retaining strap at this mounting point doubles the security of this fitting.
- If you require a spare receiving bracket for a second bike, one is included in this Hitch Kit.
- Fitted with two steel wheels for stability.
- The wheels come fitted with 16x1.75 inch pneumatic tyres and Schrader valves.
- These wheels are secured with the same style of D-Ring quick release spring clip as the trailer's hitch - no tools required.
- Solid plywood base.
- The Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer can be disassembled and folded flat in 5 minutes (with practice) into its 80 x 56 x 24cm (approx 31.5 x 22 x 9.5 inches) box for compact storage - - no tools required.
- Thanks to the flexibility of the trailer's nylon walls, its storage dimensions 70x48x31cm (approx 27 x 19 x 12 inches) can be moderately increased when you need to overstuff it.
- The slip-on cover with yellow reflective strips helps keep your cargo dry.
- This cover has two velcro ties so it stays attached when you open the opposite end to access your cargo.
- Wheelbase 68.6cm (27 inch).
- Recommended load capacity: 40kg.
- Weight: 10kg - based upon weighing an Avenir Mule Cargo Trailer at Bike Co-op HQ in April 2015.
- Be aware that cycling equipment specifications can change without notice so please regard our published weights as an honest but approximate guide.
Cargo trailers are great because
- A trailer barely compromises the handling of a bike.
- When it comes to heavy loads, a trailer tends to be more neutral handling than the obvious alternative - fitting panniers to the bike.
- Unlike pannier racks, which are usually a permanent fitting, you only fit the trailer when required, leaving your bicycle unencumbered when you ride sans trailer.
- A trailer on the back gives you more presence on the road, so passing traffic gives you more clearance when overtaking.
- If you use a trailer to ply your trade, it can double as an advertising hoarding.
- A trailer is a great leveller - the strongest member of your 'team' or family can carry the cargo, thus allowing the weaker or less keen cyclists to ride unencumbered, so they'll have a better chance to keep up.
